A reader emails about “a “decent journalist, trained and skilled”

A reader emails about Bryce Johns’ editorial:


Gong hei fa xai and all that. Just back from a glorious 2 week break and catching up on some of the recent posts. I saw the one from yesterday about Bryce Johns’ editorial – what a patronising cock. I couldn’t help notice an appalling lack of education from a “decent journalist, trained and skilled” in the second paragraph of his Holmes editorial. 

He used the word “inimical” which means unfriendly and hostile, rather than the word I think he meant to use, which is “inimitable”. Just another Herald bomb, this time from the editor – priceless.


If he really did mean inimical then this is probably why Martin Devlin was mad as hell.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
